Japan Form


Japan are in desperate need of some points. 

The Blue Samurai suffered a shock 1-0 loss at home to Oman, before recovering with a 1-0 win over China. 

But this was merely a temporary fix, as Japan suffered their second loss of the campaign when they went down 1-0 to Saudi Arabia away from home.
